We continually fundraise to subsidise the costs of therapies and do not profit from member contributions.

Oxygen therapy can be used in the treatment of a variety of health conditions as well as aiding in recovery from injuries, stroke and cancer treatments.
It is one of the main therapies we provide at the Centre and since we began therapies, in 1985, we have carried out over 100,000 individual, safe, sessions in our barochamber.
Sports massage isn't just for sporty types! Massage works with the whole body and has been shown to have a positive effect both mechanically and neurologically.
If you're recovering from an injury massage, combined with physiotherapy and oxygen may help speed up the healing process.
Maintaining mobility can be a challenge for many people with neurological conditions, particularly where there are also issues with pain and spasticity.
We offer regular physiotherapy sessions to help people maintain muscle strength and mobility through tailored exercise programmes, in our purpose-built, fully accessible gym.
After the lockdowns and other restrictions of the last year we have started to embrace the online world, we now offer Physio classes by Zoom, online meditation and, soon, archived exercise classes.
Acupuncture has been used as a complementary treatment for MS since the 1970's it has been shown to stabilise and improve many symptoms associated with neurological conditions.
NICE often recommend the use of acupuncture to manage chronic pain and as far back as 2013 were encouraging people with MS to seek it out.
The Centre provides access to a variety of specialist clinics, both medical and advice-based. These include a spasticity clinic (referral only), Benefits Advice Service and Advocacy, MS Nurse Clinic, Bladder and Bowel Wellness Clinic, and Foot health.
